2009 Rogers Cup: Niemeyer to face Federer tomorrow.
The 2009 Rogers Cup held in Montreal promises to be an exciting event for tennis fans. 19 of the top 20 ranked players are in town to play this week.
Among the Canadian players invited, Frederic Niemeyer played a great first round match today. The fans gathered at the Uniprix stadium saw him defeat Igor Kunitsyn in two sets of 7-5 and 6-1.
In his second round match, Niemeyer will face the number one player in the world, Roger Federer. The matchup looks like an uneven one as Niemeyer is only ranked 691th in the world. But the home crowd will support him and it will probably give him a boost of energy.
The match is scheduled for tomorrow evening on the center court.
